About this Book

"When someone has been judged guilty and the appellate and collateral review process has ended, the legal profession seems to lose all interest. When a prisoner is taken away, our attention turns to the next case. When the door is locked against the prisoner, we do not think about what is behind it."

"As a profession, and as a people, we should know what happens after the prisoner is taken away."

"Out of sight, out of mind is an unacceptable excuse for a prison system that incarcerated over two million human beings in the United States."

"[o]ur resources are misspent, our punishments too severe, our sentences too long."


Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy

This compendium of the American Bar Association's Commission on Effective Criminal Sanctions and the Justice Kennedy Commission focuses on the fairness and proportionality of punishment and on ways in which criminal offenders may avoid or escape the permanent legal disabilities and stigma of a criminal record.
